Russia To Appeal Against The Ban From 2022 World Cup
The Court of Arbitration For Sports (CAS) has expelled Russia from the World Cup 2022 and all other international sports competitions. The Russian Football Federation ( RFU) is going to appeal to the sports court to remove the ban.
Russia was going to face Poland on March 24 in a World Cup match. But after the decision taken by FIFA and UEFA on February 24, Russia is now banned from all the competitions regarding his invasion of Ukraine.
RFU made a statement in Russian, that they are going to file a single lawsuit against the global and European entities to “demand the restoration of all men’s and women’s national teams of Russia for all types of football.”
And further added that they are planning to seek “compensation for damage.”

FIFA And UEFA Decision
A Statement made by FIFA and UEFA results in the expulsion of Russia from all the international competitions. In their joint statement, they stated that “FIFA and UEFA have today decided together that all Russian teams, whether national representative teams or club teams, shall be suspended from participation in both FIFA and UEFA competitions until further notice.”
On Monday the RFU complained that they are getting unfair treatment, said “FIFA and UEFA did not have a legal basis when deciding on the suspension of Russian teams. It violated the fundamental rights of the RFU as a member of FIFA and UEFA, including the right to take part in competitions.”
Further added that “The Russian Football Union was also not granted the right to present its position, which violated the fundamental right to defence.”
“FIFA and UEFA did not take into account other possible options.”
“will insist on an accelerated procedure for considering the case,” RFU said.
FIFA first announces that under the name of Football Union Of Russia, the Russian teams will be allowed to continue.
But soon after the statement, Polish FA president Cezary Kulesza said “Poland would not play against Russia”, “no matter what the name of the team is.”
